id="cnetReview" section="rvwBody" data-component="indepthReview"> Google is pivoting to a whole new pricing bracket. At its annual Google I/O conference Tuesday, the tech giant announced the Pixel 3A and Pixel 3A XL. Though they have last year's name, they're indeed new phones that serve as a more budget-friendly variant of the company's main flagships, the Pixel 3 ($457 at Amazon) and 3 XL.

Starting at $399 and $479 (£399 and £469 in the UK, AU$649 and AU$799 in Australia), the phones continue to represent Google's ultimate expression du lịch bắc kinh of its mobile operating system, Android, which is the most popular OS in the world. Though Google's latest flagships are struggling to sell tour bắc kinh against its Apple and Samsung competitors, which dominate the industry, Google hopes to shake up its pricing model and put more Pixels in people's hands. After all, now that the Pixel 3A phones are nearly du lịch bắc kinh 50% cheaper than past generations, the company can now attract a new set of customers and ultimately increase sales.

The Pixel 3A XL has the same camera as the Pixel 3 phones, but Google stripped down a few of its key hardware specs. (For a more in-depth look at the camera, check out CNET's Pixel 3 review.) The Pixel 3A XL is also essentially a larger version of the Pixel 3A, so if you want more detail on what's new with both phones, head to CNET's Pixel 3A review too.

In general, the Pixel 3A XL doesn't have as much of the high-end hardware the original Pixel 3s have, but Google still whipped up a great phone. Compared to the "budget" options of its competitors like the iPhone XR ($533 at Amazon) and the Galaxy S10E, the Pixel 3A XL doesn't have features such as water resistance or wireless charging. But if you want a big screen, the latest software from Google and you want to take fantastic photos -- all at a few hundreds of dollars less than the other phones -- the Pixel 3A XL is the phone to get.
